* AntiClimaxBoss: Prince Thrakhath in the final stretch of ''Wing Commander III''; even though he is flying the Bloodfang, renowned for its unmatched lethality among the Kilrathi, he flies little faster than a Vaktoth and you likely won't need much time taking him out in your Excalibur.

** Hey, it's [[Series/{{LOST}} Dr. Pierre Chang]] flying under the callsign "Vagabond"!
** For ''Wing Commander IV'' alone, [[Film/StarshipTroopers Johnny Rico]] flew as a RedShirt, [[Series/IronChef The Chairman]] flew under "Catscratch", and [[Series/TheWestWing Leo McGarry]] served as Captain Paulsen.



** [[Series/IronChefAmerica Mark Dacascos]] in ''Wing Commander IV''.
** In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it minor scene, you can see that the pilot who offers to carry Blair's bag when he first arrives aboard the ''Lexington'' is none other than [[Film/StarshipTroopers Casper Van Dien]].

Added DiffLines:

** The various ships and starfighters featured do not resemble their video game counterparts at all. Especially egregious are the Rapiers, which are downright ugly compared to those of the games.

** Not to mention at all the all-star cast that played the characters in the FMV portions of the games... did not appear at all in the series. Seriously, you had ''Mark Hamill'' in the lead role as one of the best pilots in the galaxy, just for a start!

* TheScrappy: Everybody seems to hate Maniac (both in real life and in-universe)... [[CreatorsPet Except for the writing staff]], since of all of the cast members who get KilledOffForReal, Maniac -- the most likely candidate given his rank, status, and reckless behavior -- isn't one of them.

* {{Squick}}: From ''Wing Commander IV'', the sight of one of the victims of the biological attack on Telamon. Even Blair and his comrades must look away upon seeing the aftermath of it.

Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: ''Wing Commander III'' opens on the burning, half-sunken wreck of the ''Concordia'', your flagship from the previous game which is then deemed a "total loss". Come 2012 the ''Costa Concordia'' disaster took place, with the ship similarly marooned and damaged beyond repair off the coast of Tuscany.
